Staff and volunteers at RSPB Leighton Moss Café in Silverdale are delighted to have won the 2013 Café Award from Kendal and District Cycle Scene (KDCS).

Now in its second year, the Café Award is a recognition of the group’s favorite café and is voted for by members at the KDCS Christmas dinner.

The winning café receives a trophy, which is held for 12 months.

Chris Rowley, from KDCS, said: “There is a lot of competition, with over 50 cafés on our list.

“Leighton Moss was chosen because of its cake, service and 10% discount for cyclists.”

Patrick Keating, catering manager at Leighton Moss, said: “We are very proud to have won the KDCS Café Award.

“With the reserve hosting the recent series of BBC Autumnwatch, 2013 was an incredibly successful year for us and both the staff and volunteers have worked so hard.

“This award is the icing on the cake.”

All of the profits from the Leighton Moss café are used for the RSPB’s wildlife conservation work, helping to give nature a home.

In a bid to encourage greener methods of travel, the reserve offers a 10% discount and free entry to those who have travelled there by public transport or bike.
